Van Slyke is dealing with an ankle injury. He rolled his ankle Wednesday, and was removed from the game. X-rays came back negative on the injury, and Van Slyke shouldn't be out too long.
"He wants time to physically catch up...let's just see where we're at," manager Joe Girardi said, via the paper.
Gonzalez missed Wednesday's game due to a back injury. He was able to return Friday, and will assume his normal third spot in the batting order. Gonzalez is hitting .275/.334/.460 in 480 at-bats.
Robinson hit the DL earlier this week due to a left shoulder subluxation, and will not be able to return. He hit just .150/.227/.200 in a part-time role with the Cardinals this season, and should be healthy in time for the start of spring training.
Votto, who has been out since July 8, took groundballs Wednesday, but appears to have suffered some sort of setback. He was able to take dry swings Thursday, but is not scheduled to travel with the team moving forward.
"There was still some fairly significant discomfort when he got lateral side-to-side so we had back off with that and stay with some strengthening and whatever the physical therapy protocols are," manager Bryan Price told the Cincinnati Enquirer. "We hope when we get back there are some marked improvement."
At this point, Votto is still expected to return by season's end, but there is no specific timetable for his expected return.
